The Apollo hospitals group marked its 15th anniversary of JCI accreditation that recognizes its commitment to excellence across the spectrum of care with a unique webinar on patient safety and quality of care in association with Joint Commission International, USA (JCI) and the National Accreditation Board of Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH).
It was in July 2005 that the Apollo hospital group clocked a major milestone when Indraprastha Apollo hospitals, New Delhi became the 1st hospital in the country and the 6th in Asia to be accredited by the JCI. Since then, eight hospitals in the group including the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre have joined the elite list of JCI accredited hospitals for best global practices, patient care and safety.
The webinar organized to mark the occasion saw participation from healthcare leaders, quality heads, administrators, policymakers, patient safety experts, and healthcare management students with a passion for quality and patient safety. The experts also shared their vision for better patient safety and quality care as well as pragmatic insights for implementation across organizations for shaping quality patient care.
JCI is the recognized global leader in health care accreditation. A JCI accreditation shows that a healthcare organization has chosen to pursue a commitment to excellence across the spectrum of care that elevates it into the global elite.
NABH was formed in 2005 and is the principal accreditation for Indian hospitals. It has led accreditation activities in India and has helped Indian healthcare standards upscale to the next level.
